New works by Kaufman and Jeffrey.
Jeffrey's work is simple and elegant and delivers a subtle transformation of surreal landscapes where insect forms blend into architectural designs.
Kaufman is a member of the faculty at the Corcoran School of Art. Her work is original in the way that it delivers social observations filled with acute impressions of the discarded world of expendable items. She joins her drawing skills with a refined eye for assembly and sculpture to create "three dimensional drawings" that subtly become sculptures before the viewer's eyes. In Katie's works every object has a second hidden meaning, exposed through her intelligent combinations of black and white drawings and found objects.
